This is the furthest North sector at Palomas. this area is not really distinct from the Far Side II, but the character of climbing is a bit different, with generally much shorter routes, and a different setting. At this end of the cliff the broad, wooded clff base is replace with thick brush growing right up to the cliff base trail. The lack of shade is off-set by beautiful views of the Sandias to the West. The cliff top can be accessed by treversing to the far north end of this sector, past WYSIWYG.
Coninue on the cliff base trail about 50 yds past the Pizza Slab.

I recommend rapping off this route because it does wander a bit but you can be lowered. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
